    This school is awesome. They are doing what every school should be doing by incorporating respect and discipline into the curriculum. I would be proud to send my child to this school.

    My daughter has been at this school for going on 4 years now all the teachers she has had have been wonderful! It's a rated excellent school for learning which is my main concern. My daughter was in the first grade doing the same work as her 3rd grade cousin. As far as academic it has proved itself . I don't really care for the principal. She lacks compassion and a nurturing attitude. She is very abrupt with the children and very intimidating. My daughter is scared of her. Which re-enforces my daughter to never get in trouble b/c she doesn't want to go in her office. Education and staff are wonderful minus principal. But she is not worth my daughter education since I see results that's she is learning .

    My child has been in CHFA since kindergaden I use to like the school I found it to be great. However now there is this principal there that I feel is not good with students the teachers are constantly yelling at students. I see personally the disrespect of students not all teachers are this way K-2 your ok. But as I have seen the change from when I enrolled my child to now I do not like this. I am a active parent but I would no longer reccommend this school Im transfering my children some place else! A place that really cares about the children and learning

    My experience with College Hill has been less than impressive. The school has very little creative and fun outlets to allow the children to be kids. It is very rigid with even simple pleasurable events like birthday parties in class. The mentality of the teachers I've encountered and the administrative staff is to treat these kids as if they are going to misbehave or be problematic unless they prove otherwise. And they really have to continually prove otherwise. The school needs a more diverse teaching and administrative staff for its students' background. CHFA could learn from TCP World Academy.

    Excellent School!!! My child attended College Hill Fundamental Academy from grades K-6 and I must also concur that the school has excellent teachers and IA's who often go above and beyond the call of duty. I believe that the teachers IA and Parental involvent make the school.

    I have two children attending College Hill Fundamental Academy (CHFA). I am pleased with the curriculum as well as the teachers who challenge my children to exceed the norm. I am always impressed with the the amount of effort care and attention the teachers and IA's give to the children. It is remarkable! The staff at the school is always helpful and the children well behaved. Finally I can not forget the hard working PTA an excellent avenue for parental involvement which is higly encouraged at CHFA.

    Excellent school! College Hill is a private school without cost. If you are looking for adcademics structure and parent involvement College Hill is for your child. Teachers have time to teach rather than discipling students.
